1. STOP- Students are taught that if they experience or observe bullying behavior, they should tell the perpetrator to "stop."
2. WALK- Sometimes, even when students tell others to "stop," the problem behavior continues. When this happens, students are to taught to "walk" away from the problem behavior.
3. TALK- Even when students say "stop" and they "walk" away from the problem, sometimes the problem behavior still continues. When that happens, students are taught to "talk" to a trusted adult about what is happening
